A new and up and coming Minecraft Server Hosting service with great features, amazing customer support and easy management of the server.
With so many Minecraft server hosts these days (due to the popularity of the game) its hard to find one to tick all the boxes. So we spent some time looking at newer hosting services to see what they have to offer.
So this is our review of SeekaHost and the servers you can host with them.
Pricing and Features Available
As with most things in life its important to weigh up the price vs features provided. This is because you usually get a cheaper service and expect less in terms of features or pay an expensive service knowing you will get more for your buck.
I was thrilled to see that not only have they kept their prices low. But they also seem to offer all the features that other sites do too. These things include custom domains instead of using your IP and Port. A good amount of GB per package, and certainly enough to play with the recommend amount of players.
They use multicraft for the management system of the servers, which I have no complaint about as that is a solid system to manage your servers. It offers you a huge amount of configurability for your server so thats a plus.
So far so good with the SeekaHost review. Next up lets take a look at their customer support.
Customer Support at SeekaHost
In terms of support, I noticed 2 main ways to get help. They have a live chat support on their website or client area, this feature I’m happy to see as when you have a problem you would rather talk to someone then and there.
I wasnt disappointed when I used the service either. It took around 10-20 seconds for an agent to get back to me. I asked whether I can play on Bedrock Version or Java and how easy it is to switch?
They were super helpful and sent me instructions and a video link ill leave embedded below explain how you can change server jar to play with any server type.
The second method was a ticket system you can access from your client area and also from the multicraft by selecting “help”. Here you can create a ticket and ask for any help that way. I didnt use that method as they advice they first gave me was good and got the job done.
Great customer support, nice and friendly also.
Use of Plugins, Mods, Modpacks and Changing Server Types
Now to a more technical side of Minecraft, being a game that allows people to create free modification or plugins to change the gameplay its always good to see if SeekaHost allow you to use these services.
Plugins – In terms of plugins, I wasnt disappointed. As previously stated the multicraft system is robust and specifically created for this. Meaning that I was able to use the “plugins” section to simply find and add ones I want or download and add them manually through the FTP File Access.
Mods/Modpacks – We tried two ways here, one was changing the server type to forge.16.5 and trying out a few single mods. The server was dealing with the mods really well, we experienced no lag but we only had about 5 mods loaded in though. In terms of Modpacks, I found they only had a smaller selection from the server jar menu. So I asked on the live chat once more and was delighted to find out you can simply request one.
Thats right! if you want a specific modpack all you need to do it ask on support and they will add it for you. This is exceptional, and one of the reasons ill be sticking with SeekaHost now with my server. They have a great experience in modding and Modpacks and even linked me some other videos on creating Modpacks and uploading them to CurseForge which i found very handy. You can check out the Server they have modded with their own modpack here.
Changing Server Types – Another great thing with multicraft is the ability to swap between bedrock, java and any other version you might use for mods or plugins. They have lots of tutorials and an easy Server Jar option you can change to change your server type.
Awesome hosting, I loved the support I got. It feels like they actually take the time to help you rather than just brushing the subject aside after answering a question you have. Highly recommended service.
